God’s counterintuitive gift!

Here’s Dane Ortlund‘s attempt to summarise Herman Bavinck’s writings on justification in a single (run-on) sentence. Love it!

“Justification, the outstanding blessing of salvation, is the Triune God’s counterintuitive gift of forensic acquittal and right status, an end-time decision announced now in the middle of history, consisting of Christ’s own righteous obedience freely imputed to sinners united to Christ through self-divesting and Christ-riveted faith.”

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
